Santigold Announces North American Spring Tour
Amanda Blank and Trouble Andrew To Support

Santigold will take her endless dance party across the US one more time this spring before heading back into the studio to record the follow up to her smash self-titled debut. Santigold will be performing with a full band and dancers for the first time in North America to bring her genre-blending sound to life. Virgin Records artist Trouble Andrew, who can be heard on the Santigold track “I’m A Lady,” along with Downtown Records’ singer/mc Amanda Blank will be the openers.

Santigold recently released “Brooklyn Go Hard,” a duet with Jay-Z produced by Kanye West that samples her current single “Shove It,” which is the lead single from the Notorious B.I.G. biopic Notorious. She recently performed “Shove It” on the debut week of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Downtown/Lizard King released Santigold’s self-titled breakthrough CD in April 2008 and it instantly became one of last year’s most acclaimed albums garnering international raves. Critics and radio have championed the record’s standout singles “L.E.S. Artistes,” “Creator” and “Shove It.” Both the album and singles made countless “Best of 2008” lists from Rolling Stone to The Wall Street Journal.
